Nuisance Ponding Discrepancies Repaired
Nuisance Ponding refers to stagnant pools of water that do not dry in a 48-hour period. These stagnant pools of water are usually caused by improperly graded roads and deterioration of roads. Ponding issues are resolved by removing and replacing the existing asphalt, leveling it to proper grade, thus providing positive water flow. Successful ponding repairs are described as repairs that have a positive flow of water that do not leave pools of water that remain more than 24 hours. Nuisance Ponding repairs are captured and reported by the number of repairs performed each month. The City of Tampa will attempt to repair two Nuisance Ponding issues per month.
